COVID-19 has highlighted the devastating and long-standing disparities in the care of older adults. America’s aging population is increasing, yet their needs are often marginalized, misunderstood, or missed entirely. Awareness is the first step toward advocacy.
Please join The Center for Public Service & Community Research April 8 at 1 p.m. for a Vital Voices discussion on what we can do as individuals and as a society to honor and care for those who have come before us. The event will be hosted by UHD’s Social Work lecturer Dr. Angie Goins with special guest Dr. Rachel Janeta, Assistant Professor of Medicine at UTHealth’s McGovern Medical School and the Director of Education at UT Health’s Consortium on Aging.
Even if you do not have an elder person in your life, the impact of older adult care in America affects us all.
